With this book, Eric Tamm takes one of the deepest looks ever put to paper about an electronic musician.
Tamm’s book, Brian Eno: His Music and the Vertical Color of Sound, is divided into two main sections. The first is a review of Brian Eno and his work in the context of modern music. This looks at both his role in the world of popular music and where he fits in the world of “art” music. It also looks at his background, influences, working methods, and the ideas that infuse his work.
The second part of his book looks in detail at Eno’s recordings. It examines both his rock and ambient music, and traces how Eno’s rock albums evolved into ambient pop
